Integrated Project Delivery at Autodesk, Inc. (B) Harvard Case Solution & Analysis

Describes Autodesk's participation in Integrated Project Delivery-a brand new version of risk management, inter-firm teamwork, and multi-objective (aesthetic, cost, and sustainability) optimization in building project. In the year 2008, Autodesk, Inc. the globally largest design software corporation, determined to participate in Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) for the design and building of its new Architecture, Engineering and Construction Options (AECS) Group headquarters, near Boston.

Under IPD, the project's architect, builder, and client (Autodesk) entered a contractual agreement to share all project risks and profits. During the endeavor, however, Autodesk was unsatisfied with the design improvement, and asked the project team to introduce a three-story atrium in the headquarters' layout. It was not a great time to make changes as the team had already made major design improvement. The team was also operational under a tight financial plan and delivery limit. However, the aesthetics would materialize to be deeply enhanced by altering the design. Contractor and the project's architect had to decide whether adapting the atrium into the current program and work sequencing was an acceptable risk.
